New Facebook email for friends, but what about your business?

A few months ago we blogged that Facebook is already the second most visited website in the UK, second only to Google, and today we read that Facebook is looking to gain even more ground in the battle for web supremacy by launching a new email service, apparently known internally as its “Gmail killer”.
We can understand why people might be seeking an alternative to Gmail, with its slightly worrying reliability problems. However Mark Zuckerberg yesterday maintained that its ‘next generation messaging service’ would not directly compete with other email providers. Business analyst Augie Ray of Forrester Research elaborated that “Facebook isn’t interested in being a management or response tool for your flood of bills, email newsletters or other communications; instead, it’s about facilitating and enhancing your personal relationships... Once again, it reinforces [that] Facebook is for friends”.
So this new platform may be really useful for keeping up with your friends, but what about your business emails? Earlier we discussed just how important it is for a business to have a reliable email provider, citing that 49 percent of companies experience 1.6 hours of downtime per week, adding up to a total cost of £1 billion per year!
